Hometown presentation of Dr Tom Waddell Trophy at SF bowling tournament

On Friday, February 18th, 2011 at 7:15pm, just before the opening of the main competition at the San Francisco Golden Gate Invitational Classic Bowling Tournament, the Federation of Gay Games will have the honor of making the "hometown" presentation of the 2012 Tom Waddell Award to Sara Waddell Lewinstein.

This is a "hometown" presentation in more ways than one. First, because it will be made in San Francisco, Sara's current home. And not just her home city, but at the Serra Bowl, which she manages, and at an event in which she is intimately involved.

"Home" as well because this beyond her own contributions to LGBT sport, to the Gay Games, to the place of women in sport and the integration of men's and women's sport, this award recognizes Sara's role in the life and work of the man it honors, Dr Tom Waddell, her partner and spouse.

And "home" of course, because San Francisco is the home of the Gay Games, the Athens of our movement.

For more information about the tournament, part of the schedule of events of FGG member organization IGBO, visit the website HERE.
